I drive a 1967 Chevy impala and I shoot with a Remington model 700 at targets or the occasional dingo that goes for my sheep.

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

I came across MBTI when doing some random non-Google search. This is my most accurate "diagnosis" so far. First, I thought that I had Asperger's syndrome. That was false.

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

I took a myers briggs test at some point and got INTP, but the letters meant nothing to me, so I ignored the test, but remembered my letters. Later, in a class, we were supposed to take the test prior to coming the first day. I was unaware this was the case, but knew the letters. When the teacher went over each person's type (it was a small group) it came to me and I told her my letters, or "INTP." Ironically I had been questioning the validity of the test outspokenly and stating various reasons why the test could be fallacious when she said that INTP's were likely to challenge systems... I went home to study the test some time later and discovered that myers-briggs had grossly sifted Jung's theories into a tragically simplified test that didn't explain functions. When I saw the functions, I realized I worked in that way, and lo and behold, I accepted my fate.

How did you find out about this forum?

Intpforum.com could not be more self-explanitory. I wanted to see what others similar to me thought and how they communicated. Similarly, but I've been desensitized somewhat from being INTP despite my inward continuous pull, and now that I've realized what's been happening, I'm working on fixing it.

Do you have a partner/lover?

No.

Do you have any kids?

No.

Do you have any pets?

Nope.

Which hobbies absorb you the most?

Things that I can do alone that require some figuring. Smash melee, rubix cubes.

How do you generate an income?

... I wish.

Hardest thing about being INTP?

Staying in Ti mode. Life is too distracting. I'm sure if it would just go away for long enough I could make sense of it. I find it funny that those who pay attention to life the least (IPs) Know a little more about life than those who pay attention to it more. Or maybe me saying that just shows how much I don't know.

SO MANY MALE 17 INTPS. INTPs: 5% of male population, 4% of 17 and male population.

I had a pet green beetle once. I put him inside a snapple bottle. It died after a couple weeks. I don't think I'll ever get a pet though, you know, like a cat or a dog?

What is your name?

Hmm, what is a name really? A label to identify a specific personality? I have a few of those. The most relevant being my user name.

Where are you from?

Chicago. (At least to start.)

How old are you?

Well I've been breathing for twenty something years but that's not very informative. I'm a bit older than that.

What's your gender?

mayonnaise (it's a gender according to tumbler, I'm also duck kin. Quack quack, Oedipus.)

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

Psych classes. I knew for years before I actually got into researching it.

How did you find out about this forum?

The secret lives of INTP's

Do you have a partner/lover?

Yes, An INFJ. Fascinating creature. Into acting and incredibly hard to read behaviorally. Seems to always be correcting me and is so sincere. Quite distracting really.

Do you have any kids?

No

Do you have any pets?

Not unless you count the underdeveloped types that ask for but inevitably ignore my advice only to completely fill my prediction of events.

Which hobbies absorb you the most?

Oooh, Writing takes everything I've got. Running (In an odd way it really helps to reset the Ti. I know not what moderation is.) Understanding people is a fun one too.

How do you generate an income?

Right now I work on roads. In three weeks I'll be in technical training for petroleum engineering.

Hardest thing about being INTP?

That delicate balance between being productive and not really caring to do anything. Also, the sheer uncertainty of just about everything.

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

A "friend" INFP was researching it and I happened to also catch interest. Though I haven't done much research into this at all, *cough*procrastination *cough*, and took enough tests to know I was in fact an INTP.

How did you find out about this forum?

Random google search. *shrugs*

No. *does the forever alone face*

Negative commander. Though I have been told I'd make a great father.

How do you generate an income?

I never have... not legitimately my own no. *looks down*

Hardest thing about being INTP?

Coming off as completely cold-hearted/disinterested when in the reality of my own mind I am really not as such. *frowns*

One a side note... I have an issue with *glances around to see who's watching and whispers* depression...
But I don't really understand why. I doubt loneliness would be this strong. I've been alone most of my life and enjoyed it mostly. No... couldn't be...

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

I have a friend that lives in California. She send me a link of mbti test. My first result was INTP. Then I took another online test I always get INTP, uh sometimes I get INTJ. P/J is always 50/50. But I relate better with INTP's cognitive function Ti-Ne-Si-Fe

The internet
Reading , autodidactism (I love to learn and read stuff I find interesting)

I don’t have any job yet.

Hardest thing about being INTP?

I’m always lazy and unmotivated. I have short attention span. I procrastinate a lot, and I rarely finish my project . A lot of times I’ve been called harsh, cold-hearted, insensitive. Even my professor said I’m selfish for being a loner. Uh I may sound like an emo for saying this but sometimes it feels like no one understands me. I tend to isolate myself a lot. I have difficulty maintaining relationships and connecting with other people.

Hello. I'm a ISTJ, I came to this forum because I don't understand you and think you are weird.

I'm happily married to my first love and have three children. On the weekends I go motorbike riding and work on my car. I also like shooting.

Something I've noticed is that you don't have a sports and recreation sub-forum. I read through all the forum rules and would like to petition the administrators to add this forum.

Also something else I find concerning a lot of the members seem to be breaking the rules and nobody is doing anything about it. Particularly not following formatting properly and multiple posts introducing themselves (that gopher fellow) Apart from absurdity. He seems like a fine upstanding man.

Now since I am old and wise and my wisdom is great feel free to ask me questions. (but not in this thread obviously that would be breaking the rules)
Nice to meet ya, everybody.

"I don't understand you and think you are weird" Thank you, you wont find much normal here, we don't care enough to conform. In Fact not being lumped in with the crowd and being called weird is something i pride myself in.

I dont think sports and rec forums would get many visitors around here. From my experience with other INTPs, we don't usually care much for those things, and the ones who do only have mild interest.

"Also something else I find concerning a lot of the members seem to be breaking the rules and nobody is doing anything about it" Super typical ISTJ :P dont take it as a bad thing, its great that you care about rules, but don't expect us to. For us the content matters, not spelling, not grammar, not adhering to some arbitrary rules, and not formats. Many of us understand that there is a reason for every rule, and as long as you don't push into that reason, you aren't breaking rules, your bending them. We only ever care about the rules when there's a problem, if there's not a problem then its not worth expending energy on.

anyway ill adhere to the format.

What is your name?

That is classified information.

Where are you from?

Alaska.

How old are you?

21

What's your gender?

Male

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

I had long been trying to figure out why im so weird, not that it's a bad thing, i just never fit in nor could i observe any similarities in my thought processes. So i stumbled upon the MBTI

How did you find out about this forum?

I came across this forums many times as i dug through the net researching many topics, so i decided to become part of it.

Do you have a partner/lover?

Recently single, and i don't think i have the energy for another relationship for a little while, my last one drained me dry of energy.

Do you have any kids?

No.

Do you have any pets?

Two dogs, one cat.

Which hobbies absorb you the most?

Reading,
Internet,
video games,
Programing,
SnowBoarding, biking, hiking
Paintball,
Dream journaling.
Avoiding humans.

How do you generate an income?

I don’t have a job atm, tho i do have a small chunk of money generated from stocks that i plan on starting my own business with. I cant do another clock punching job.

Hardest thing about being INTP?

Not having any energy reserves.
Being so damn indecisive and at times the definition of lazy. They say ignorance is bliss, must be why i get so depressed sometimes.
Not being understood, i like being weird, but nobody else seems to think that way, and always look at me funny because im doing something outside the bounds of normal.
I lose interest in things before i finish them, my ideas always work in concept, but while toiling the mundane aspects i totally lose my energy.

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

It's been a long arduous process. Okay, more like me tackling the subject for brief periods and dropping it after thinking I've understood it. Then realizing I was wrong and re-tackling. But, I found a questionnaire that matched up philosophies and MBTI which led me to considering INTP. So far, so good.

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

I first learned about MBTI when I saw a Tumblr post about the different archetypes. Actually, I was looking for "The Archetypes" by Marina and the Diamonds, but I got distracted by the psychology stuff and took the first quiz I could get my hands on. I got INTJ. When I took the test a second time, I got INTJ, but a little note at the bottom said that I had "marginal or no preference for Judging over Perceiving." It went on to suggest that I might be INTP. So I looked at the profile for INTP, and I thought it fit me better than the corresponding one for INTJ. It took three more tests and many hours of thinking before I finally accepted being in the same boat as the absent-minded professor. Not that I'm complaining, though.

How did you find out about this forum?

I spent a couple hours browsing the INTJ forum and afterwards looked for its INTP equivalent. I didn't have to look for long.

Do you have a partner/lover?

No. But I'm already making a list of all the qualities I want in one.

Do you have any kids?

No.

Do you have any pets?

No.

Which hobbies absorb you the most?

Reading, writing, and surfing the Internet. I'm willing to read almost anything in sight now, but my current obsessions are the newspaper and Time magazine. I also like fiction and want to write my own novels, but I can't seem to get started on any particular project despite the fact that I have lots of ideas.

How do you generate an income?

I don't. I still depend on my allowance.

Hardest thing about being INTP?

Trying to play the social game. Because the world is run mostly by extraverts and judgers, we have to adapt some of their values in order to get what we want. Some, like dressing nicely, are actually quite easy; others, like submitting stuff on time, are a tad more difficult. Also, there's our tendency to avoid leadership and at the same time hate being told what to do. This directly contradicts the structure of the real world: if you can't be a follower, you'll have to be a leader, and if you hate leadership, you'll have to be a follower. And lastly, there's the constant battle between Ti and Fe. As much as we'd love to be logical all the time, there are times when our emotions get the better of us. I know the other types have issues with this as well, but that website certainly wasn't joking when it said an INTP's emotional regulator had only two settings: low and overdrive.

Sometimes, I think the SJ's have it easy, but I'm not sure I want to be like them.

...I hope I didn't sound too rude or anything...

Hey if dancing isn't a hobby that absorbs you is that why you are graceless? I'm curious where the name comes from.

Also to stay on topic. I'm an INFJ from Australia and I totally haven't posted in this thread 5 times under different personality types by accident.

Yeah I was, until I met INFP's. Could still be, but who knows.

Hi!

What is your name?

You can call me FoH. :) Privacy on the interwebs!

Where are you from?

I live in the state of New York in the country USA on the planet Earth

What's your gender?

I am technically female, but I don't really care what people call me.

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

I have no idea how I found out about MBTI, but I took a very abridged version (four questions) when I was 11 or 12 and got ENFP, then I took a whole bunch of other tests, (getting mostly INTJ, INFP and INTP) and resonated most with INTP, so I'm a bit self-typed.

How did you find out about this forum?

On my mad quest to find every article and every post relating to the MBTI type INTP.

Do you have any pets?

I have a cat, and he is sometimes friendly.

So, hi. I didn't want to post an introduction on the main forum page, because I'm shy. :P

Our teachers got us to do the MBTI in late primary school, but I didn't really understand it at the time. I stumbled back onto it last year. I have fluctuated between INTJ and INTP since then; I've only been able to really identify with INTJ over INTP really recently.

Do you have a partner/lover?

There's an ENTP who is interested in me (and I reciprocate his feelings...maybe), but we're better off just being friends for now.

Do you have any pets?
A cat.

Hardest thing about being INTP/your type?
As an INTJ, people think you don't have feelings... I do. Don't be fooled, folks. I care.

we INTP's don't like traditional sports. We think games ( of all kinds) are sporty. Also rules are strange to us. I mean we follow them if we have to but being a strategic trouble maker is more engaging. Which is doubly as strange because most people are generic and we play games because we are trying to find the truth behind so much fuckery in the world.

Hope that cleared up everything

First took the test several years ago (we all know those are worthless), and have been reading about MBTI mostly through forums and the internet since then. I have always scored as INxx, but now I know for sure I'm INP.

How did you find out about this forum?

By googling INTP profiles.

Do you have a partner/lover?

No. I have come close a few times, but it never works out for some reason or another.

Do you have any kids?

Nope.

Do you have any pets?

Nope

Which hobbies absorb you the most?

I have very scattered interests and can become absorbed by a great many ideas and topics, so usually I'll end up reading stuff on the internet. Sometimes I'll read actual books, fiction and nonfiction alike.

How do you generate an income?

I'm a freelance editor/writer/blogger right now...think I'm going into teaching soon or perhaps a random office job. I would like to become a professional author or perhaps a musician someday -- we'll see how that goes...

Hardest thing about being INP?

The feeling we can have of absolute lack of control over our lives. This is tied up with the depersonalization and derealization phenomena.

Seeing far too many possibilities in general, and too many pitfalls within any given singular option.

Not being able to find your niche, being ensnared in a world that wants to hijack your autonomy and sense of self.

What is your name?

Not important.

Where are you from?

I've lived in several countries and don't belong perfectly to one. I can't answer this question.

How old are you?

Early 20s

What's your gender?

Female

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

A friend made me do it 2 years ago. We all questioned the validity of the whole thing. A human resource I came to know well said great things about it, though I held on to doubt the more I researched. I was an INTP then, and am frustratingly the same now. I accepted it since it told a few things about me.

How did you find out about this forum?

First page of Google. I like threads like this one, and thought I'd join so close to my exams.

Do you have any pets?

A meowian.

Which hobbies absorb you the most?

Illustrative Art, swimming. Sitting in my chair and having a dialogue with myself, in my head. Thinking of creating new things. Also, doing bits of technical things and intend to make a working video game or some sort in the summer.

Hardest thing about being INTP?

Conformity. I didn't like defining myself to these four letters, strictly. There's always the possibility that we're inclined to different things at different times. I'm a skeptical eggnaught, so it bothered me. I'm also self-critical so skepticism bothered me. I used to question the validity of everything - but eventually, I also regard rules as permissible because they are the result of some empirical successes. I became somewhat lazy, and happier to focus on something else.

My mind is in a conversation all the time, in everything that I do. Often, they are useless and random. I wish I was more of a do-er so that at least I am honestly scary in the outside.

Where I am.
Name:

Maye

Where are you from?

Hell. (Texas)

How old are you?

14. I'm a dual-student, which basically means I'm a college student and a highschool student. Though for this semester I'm only taking one college class...German...Agh...Probably one of the youngest people on here. Sorry if that's lame.

What's your gender?

Female

How did you find out that you were INTP or other type?

I like taking tests, especially things that allow me to question who I am. Found it through google.

How did you find out about this forum?

I was curious to find others like me. So I googled it.

Do you have a partner/lover?

As much of a hopeless romantic I am, there isn't anyone I am interested in. Plus, I wouldn't date anyone because I'd only end up hurting them. Besides, I'm too young for anything to be serious. And everyone my age is stupid.

Do you have any kids?

HAHA. No. No tiny demons. :evil:

Do you have any pets?

Just a dog and a little brother.

Which hobbies absorb you the most?

Messing with people. Art in general. Cleaning, learning, literature as a whole, cooking, daydreaming, pacing, listening, napping in various locations, anime, video games...and lots of studying.

How do you generate an income?

Hopefully one of these days I will be a graphic designer. But for now it's babysitting, helping out at the bakery, and washing dogs.

Hardest thing about INTP?

Everyone thinks I'm an ass if I don't lie constantly. I don't care about my appearance I just don't like making other people uncomfortable because they're harder to control and in some cases it just makes them annoying... It's sometimes hard to be around my friends. I'd much rather be somewhere alone, like the campus library.

I wish I could just think somewhere quiet. It's always too noisy...

What is your name?
Name's Glendon

Where are you from?
I'm from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. And I feel very strange posting this stuff on a forum but hey, what are you gonna do. Can't use TOR for everything.

How old are you?
25 as of this writing

What's your gender?
Male

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?
Found out today by actually reading the other personality types (used to think I was INTJ =/). This (the MBTI) hasn't been my thing (since apparently before I was pegged as NOT myself) but reading the INTP profile made me understand how useful a tool the MBTI is. For the longest time I thought I was an INTJ... the test is a nice tool, but too easily fooled, particularly by someone who goes through life attacking systems /before/ determining whether they're useful. I read the INTP one and was like, "This makes waaaay more sense... I don't plan things!"

How did you find out about this forum?
Googling for INTP-related things.

Do you have a partner/lover?
Nope. Haven't really had a good understanding of myself until a couple months ago so everything kinda turned to trash, and now, well, now I know too precisely who and what I want and too few people fill those requirements.

Do you have any kids?
No. Given the above, thank God no.

Do you have any pets?
I often think of my coworkers as pets, does that count?

What do you do for a living?
I'm an entrepreneur and a writer. The first to make money, the second to keep sane. If you ask which I'm better at, it's the latter.

I look forward to talking here and reading the walls of text folks like us are prone to putting up. Cheers!

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

For a very long time. I've taken just about every MBTI type test I can find, and the results are generally INTP. I also took a class in personality assessment in college, took the paid test, and learned how to properly administer it as well as interpret results as well as spot incongruities.

How did you find out about this forum?

Typed INTP + Forum into a search engine.

At the moment, nothing. I am having trouble finding adequate employment.

one day in midst of existential crisis /slash/ procrastination, google search about career test brought me to a MBTI personality test. That was probably 5 or so years ago. Over the years, I have been consistently tested as INTP, sometimes also INFP. Almost balanced between T and F.

Found out about MBTI while roaming the interwebs.

How did you find out about this forum?

Incoming rant story about why I value this forum above others, with some of the more awe inspiring and possibly embarrassing conflicts I have seen on the forum. I just randomly found these threads while browsing online. I don't know how.

This thing called Pod'lair started and I was intrigued by the prospect of interpreting a type through the pattern of facial expressions. In the end, there was no way to really prove that whatever pattern is on the face, can be linked to a theory that doesn't have the most solid evidence. Desperate for other opinions on these questions, I scoured forums searching for people who were willing to brave Pod'Lairs noise and check it out for themselves. There was one thread by Architect that covered his exploration of pod'lair and discussed it openly with one of pod'lairs adherents. It was interesting to him explore it as far as he could while walking through a minefield of charged comments. It was... inspiring... I think?



I remember seeing another thread from Snafupants talking about innate race differences and the states policy 'affirmative action'. Some other blogger that I ran into online (claimed to be INTP) made some sentimentally laden rant about how terrible it was that another INTP believed such a thing. Outside this forum, such sentimental charges held weight, but here... I haven't seen THAT much of it.

Hello. I'm a ISTJ, I came to this forum because I don't understand you and think you are weird.

I'm happily married to my first love and have three children. On the weekends I go motorbike riding and work on my car. I also like shooting.

Something I've noticed is that you don't have a sports and recreation sub-forum. I read through all the forum rules and would like to petition the administrators to add this forum.

Also something else I find concerning a lot of the members seem to be breaking the rules and nobody is doing anything about it. Particularly not following formatting properly and multiple posts introducing themselves (that gopher fellow) Apart from absurdity. He seems like a fine upstanding man.

Now since I am old and wise and my wisdom is great feel free to ask me questions. (but not in this thread obviously that would be breaking the rules)
This is genius.

Nope! I'm 15

Yea. A parrot, two cats, a bunny, and a three legged Labrador.

If you can think of any other questions you might like to ask new members, or myself, please add them.
